This outstanding former Coach House dating from 1901 and formerly part of a country house estate and designed by Sir Reginald Blomfield has undergone an imaginative transformation to create a light and spacious family home with a stunning interior and high specification throughout. Many of the period features have been retained such as the stone quoins to the exterior and to the interior high ceilings and attractive windows. Arranged over two floors with beautifully presented accommodation, points of particular note include: A spacious and welcoming reception hall with feature fireplace with book shelves above and door to the cloakroom with separate WC. The drawing room is an impressive room with fine views of the garden and beyond has polished wood flooring, attractive wood burning stove with stone surround and former stable door opening onto the enclosed courtyard and opposite French doors opening onto the terrace and garden. The fine dining room and excellent family room are both good size rooms, the dining room with an open fireplace and the family room with wood burning stove, a double aspect outlook and French doors opening onto the terrace and garden. There is also an adjoining utility room. The excellent large kitchen/breakfast room has delightful outlooks over the courtyard and has an extensive range of solid wood cupboards and drawers, long work surfaces, an oil fired AGA with further electric oven companion, 4 ring ceramic hob, integrated dishwasher and delightful fitted window seat with storage underneath within the wide bay window. The staircase from the dining room leads to the spacious first floor landing where there are five double bedrooms. The principal bedroom is a large room with an excellent range of fitted wardrobe cupboards and an attractive feature arched window with fitted plantation shutters, the same feature arched window is also in a further bedroom. There are two adjoining bedrooms which have eaves storage and attractive outlooks over the garden and surrounding countryside.
